The Rough Guide To The Music Of Brazil: ''Bahia''

Audio CD: FDO 2004-07-12
Label: World Music Network
"Bahia is the musical heartbeat of Brazil, and is home of the tropicalia movement, axé, samba-reggae and the mesmerizing beat of the mega-percussion ensembles – the Blocos Afros. The Rough Guide To The Music Of Brazil: Bahia offers you some of the most delectable sounds from this cultural centre, from renowned artists such as tropicalia-legends Gilberto Gil and Tom Zé, percussionist Carlinhos Brown and the infectious music of Daniela Mercury. Enjoy!......at 192.0 kb/sec!"
"Salvador de Bahia is Brazil’s most African city, where baroque cathedrals co-exist with temples to the African gods – and the influences of both are apparent in its music. The key to the Bahia sound is the lone voice backed by thundering percussion and surging anthemic choruses… If you want your carnival to last all summer, just keep playing this wonderful album." The Daily Telegraph
